Reducing the operational impact of our products
We’re focused on having the best environmental profile we can, and we’re getting there by lowering our greenhouse emissions, boosting our energy efficiency and using renewable energy.
We want to reduce our life cycle greenhouse emissions by one-third by 2034.
No waste from our factories are sent to landfill
More than 50% of our electricity comes from renewable resources
In 2020, the ROCKWOOL Group joined the ambitious Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) and pledged to reduce our lifecycle greenhouse emissions by one third by 2034.
This means reducing manufacturing emissions by 38% and another 20% percent in non-factory related emissions (upstream and downstream).
These targets are a vital step towards decarbonisation and achieving net zero emissions in our society by 2050.
The reduction of our operational emissions in our factories is a key focus for technology innovation.
In ROCKWOOL we’ve pioneered large scale electric melter technology in countries where the electricity impact from the grid is low and we’ve invested in fuel flexible melting technology, which helps us transition toward less carbon intensive fuels.
In 2021 our biggest manufacturing facility in Poland will move to natural gas, and we are very excited about it.
We’re always improving our production by using leading environmental and quality management systems that are certified by 3rd parties that follow the ISO 14001 “Environmental management systems – Requirements with guidance for use” and ISO 9001 “Quality management systems — Requirements.
